As a M & B wife she followed husband Les to Port Alberni. After 5 years, Bev and John stayed and married while Aloha and Les moved to Campbell River with Marie and Bill in tow. In Campbell River, Aloha ventured out of the home to work at Cinderella Boutique. Marie and Bill married and stayed, while Les and Aloha moved, this time to Parksville. Thirty years later the decision was made to return to Campbell River Mom loved life and found the humour in everything even if it wasn’t funny.
